Targeting the retrofit market, Alto Aviation has launched its 2016 Gulfstream cabin audio and entertainment upgrade programs.
The Gulfstream digital audio upgrade program was designed for G-IV (serial numbers 1464 or higher), G-V (serial numbers 635 or higher), G450 (serial numbers 4002 or higher) and G550 (serial numbers 5002 or higher) aircraft. To convert these to a full Alto audio system, Alto offers a direct-fit digital amp and direct-fit speakers. By implementing a new digital amp with EQ compensation, Alto can customize the sound system. The company says few or no wiring changes are needed.
Meanwhile, the Gulfstream-Bose replacement upgrade program is offered for G-IV (serial numbers 1209 -1405) and G-V (serial numbers 501-603) aircraft. The Bose systems in these cabins can be completely replaced, or customers can opt to replace only the mid-range/high enclosure, or only the subwoofer. Alto’s PSU mid-range/high enclosure is 100% compatible with the former Bose unit, meaning no PSU modifications are required. The Bose upgrade involves the installation of new wiring harnesses.
